My personal statement is summed up in Hampton's Academy mission statement: "To teach students the discipline they need to discover and nurture their artistic talents".
Mr. Redcross taught in the Washington D.C. public schools for 5 years and 4 years in Newport News as a music educator. In 1983, he founded RD Music Studio where private and group piano lessons were taught. In 2000, RD Music Studio expanded to become EduStar Academy of Performing Arts Inc. where, with a staff of dedicated educators, drama and dance classes were added to the curriculum. Today we are known as Hampton Academy of Music, Dance, and Drama Inc.
